From Garcia's: "The bar is open seven days a week, and hosts live music. Garcia’s features rare photos, artwork, and equipment, including vintage never-before-seen shots from famed music/fashion photographer Roberto Robanne, who met Garcia in 1966 and had unlimited access to Garcia and the Dead. Noted philanthropist and Grateful Dead fan Scott Brittingham has also loaned an 18? bronze sculpture of Garcia’s hand to the bar (one was donated to the Grateful Dead Archive at UC Santa Cruz and another exact version is displayed in Garcia’s honor at The Santa Barbara Bowl in Santa Barbara).
"More than any one artist, Jerry Garcia evokes the spirit of The Cap,” says theatre owner Peter Shapiro. “We’re thrilled that we were able to collaborate with his family to enable visitors to feel his presence every night.
“It’s no secret that the Grateful Dead loved playing at the Capitol Theatre,” says the band’s archivist David Lemieux. They performed there 18 times in 1970-71 alone. In a rave review of Furthur’s performance at The Cap in April, Rolling Stone called the theater “one of the best music halls in the country” and said “it feels like it was designed specifically to host the Dead.
